Teeny tiny restaurant off the parking lot was a pleasant surprise. A bit of a wait on a Saturday night but I guess that is par for the course when you have just a handful of tables.

Great off the beaten track spot for tacos, barritos and more. Nice cold beers and a small space that's fun to be in. Located behind the main stores on Deer Park Ave it's got a off the main drag feel. Great place for lunch but it does get crowded.

Even though this a upcoming new restaurant I have to say the staff is extremely nice. The food is awesome very filling. Prices are reasonable. I do see in the near future this place expanding. This restaurant is always crowded but that's great because the food is worth waiting for.

My friends always eat the tacos here and I have a burrito and we totally love it. Listen to the specials they are usually great. Count with some waiting time because that place is very tiny but always packed. The staff is super friendly. Would recommend it.

My fiancé and I love Swell Taco so much that I had them cater his birthday party last year! We love going into Babylon village and getting a delicious burrito or taco. The prices are very reasonable and the daily specials are always interesting and different. Love getting chips while waiting for our food too!

No fajitas, artificial tasting lime mix in margaritas, and indigestion afterwards. Overall the was average, the place cozy and congenial, the prices reasonable, and the portions were large, however the selection is geared towards millennials and teens. I would incorporate healthier options as well as authentic Mexican dishes. Not what we expected based on the reviews and don't think we... More

Love it. Been there several times. Some reviewers might say they prefer the food at Bubba's burritos, but I far prefer the atmosphere at Swell b/c you can actually get a seat with a waiter/waitress (rather than having a line of people constantly formed down the center of the restaurant like Bubba's). This is huge when you have little kids... More
